Twitter was never shiit.

Instagram was killing them before trump came.

Imagine the arrogance. Trump elevated them beyond their wildest dreams.

There are those who came to twitter to batch trump only. So for or against you had the numbers.

But because you saw he has lost the election you decide to act tough. Shameless idiote.

Bloody ideologers. Typical left people. I say weak or woman like things. When they benefit from male strenght they suddenly start to want to be, or act independent.

Pay attention to their arrows. Its will be reading red. Them and that CNN people.

We're they will get real energy to lash on to and profit from they will tell me.

I don't like Trump but banning him is stupid, it's something I would expect from China.

Many different celebrities post inciting things but aren't removed. Even worse is other companies removing him even he didn't violate their rules or use their services.

Liberty loving people shouldn't support this because one day when the mass consciousness swings the other way they will be victims as well.

More than 15 topmost social media platforms banned Trump ( including
youtube, gmail and apple) and you believe Biden will ban all of them

They'll simply migrate to a more friendly country like Canada etc n move on. You can imagine who losses

Forgetoo every where is not like africa.

Mark my words Trump is going downhill from now.

Eventhough i wanted him to win the election. But for a leader to stir up the worst in a community n disrupt everything, is a no no period

Every society in the world have hooligans n hoodlums. Hence the role of Govt is to keep them in check/down and maintain law and order. Developed nations use social warfare while shit hole contries use political thuggery and police brutality grin. But when a leader is using n inciting mobs to disrupt a co-equal arm of Govt. Never never

The common strategy to frustrate the head of terrorist organisations around the world, is to de-platform, isolate, silence and frustrate their ability to recruit. That's exactly what they are doing to trump now.

Developed nations don't exalt individuals above systems n institutions like Nigeria do. Which is what trump is trying to do. Hence why Mit McConnell, the Republican senate leader is saying now that Trump should either resign or be impeached.

The reason why he was impeached is to keep him humble. Which has been archived largely. If he tries anything now. The Senate will either reconvene and remove him from office or try him after inauguration and remove him still. In which case he will be banned from ever participating in politics again in US. He can continue his politics in Russia or North Korea grin grin

I feel the problem with anonymous, decentralized networks is that they're hotbeds for crime- imagine a social network with no moderation at all. Isis and Boko Haram would probably even use it to openly recruit. After all, nobody's there to stop them. At the same time, we also have concerns about balancing free speech with moderating violence. Trump had to be banned, he was too dangerous for a normal, sane society. But the people angry about free speech being suppressed have legitimate concerns. Should we really give one man (Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, Seun Osewa, etc) the power to control discussion? Give them the right to be the ultimate judge? Yes, it's their platform, private property, but that kind of sole power makes them the judge and the jury, the ultimate arbiter of public discussion. This whole issue is a real head scratcher.

Jack is a coward and hypocrite. He didn't ban Trump years ago but when it was sure that he couldn't have influence on government he removed him to look like the good guy.

Even worse is the multitudes of hip hop "artistes" using the platform to plan and brag about killing their rivals which gets no attention from anyone because they aren't political opponents. Now that his stocks are going down and users are angry he is trying to save face.

He has basically opened Pandora's box and given social media companies the justification to clamp down on anyone for any reason. What liberals who support this don't realise is that it will be used as an excuse to silence them and other minority groups and they shouldn't complain about discrimination in tech because of it.

Jack just gagged freedom of speech and u support it bt if Buhari does same or trump did same we will all scream.

Jack needs to clear himself that he wasn’t gagging freedom of speech or playing some partisan game. If not he needs to shut up.

For your information, Biden has no power to ban a social media without Congress approval, and what Twitter did is nothing but the right thing, everyone is shouting free speech, when they don't know what free speech is. Free speech law has has nothing to do with anything owned by private companies, that's why they have their own rules and regulations which once violated, they can do anything including banning you.

This is terribly wrong jack, everyone have the right and liberty to say whatever they want to say, you can't suspend someone for speaking his mind, that ain't right.

Quite true but rights have limits to the extent they can be exercised and for good measure too.

Unlimited rights have a tendency to push certain narratives which if left unchecked could lead to catastrophe of mega proportions; Hitler should come to mind.
Examples abound if you need more.

What Twitter did was absolutely wrong! They can't be trusted any more. They've shown how compromised they can be. Some time, some day, they may collaborate with the Nigerian Government and silence us the masses.

Now just imagine that the #endsars protest was silenced? This I would continue to say is a wrong move.

I disagree. Just like he didn't know was endsars was about, you don't know what Trump is capable of. Dig deeper to understand why they did what they did, if not, please keep quiet. Even Republicans are turning against him, even Mitch McConnell!

Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey has for the first time publicly reacted to the suspension of President Donald Trump's twitter account.

Dorsey, while defending the suspension, conceded that it was done in a manner that undermined public discussion; a divisive and dangerous action that could set an unexpected and inappropriate precedent for free speech, one he has been a long-standing supporter for.

Many have questioned the decision by big tech giants, Twitter and Facebook to suspend President Trump's accounts, including: German President Angela Merkel, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico, renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson and virulent Putin critic, Alexey Navalny.




Jack Dorsey
Stupid liberal fantasy from make-believe world.

Wait until China takes over the world and see what decentralisation gets you.

Weak liberal bastard.

Trump succeeded in exposing the bas t ards for who they truly here. Hate Trump or love him, it doesn’t remove the fact that his presidency exposed the one sided and partisan inclinations of big tech, big pharma and big retail

The Iranian Ayatollah that screams death to Israel and death to America every hour of the day has an active facebook account and twitter account

Hezbollah a terror organization is still on social media - their account is active while


TRUMP - an elected president of the United States account was suspended

other Democrats from Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Eric Holder, Maxine Walter who made dangerous and divisive utterances in the past inciting violence were never kicked off - BUT Trump was


If you don’t see a problem with that - then you are as uncivilized as the person who wants mob justice on a passer by who was accused having resemblance of a wanted thief - He can’t have his day in court, he must be burnt alive - right here, right now because we disagree with his plea of innocence

I think you are very correct here, they know that there is growing concern for section 230 to be repealed which gives big tech insulation from law suits but if you ask me, the leaders of Big Tech are very poor students of history

If they were good with elementary history they should know that there will always be a time when democrats will be in full control and republicans will be in full control - now it is the turn of the democrats to be in full control- so what happens to them when Republicans are in full control someday ? their business will be eviscerated in a flash and that will surely happen someday in the future because republicans won’t ever forget this act of caging them through social media censorship

Yes big mistake bt it’s obvious they are afraid of persecution from democrats who can be vile and viscous when they gang up in their numbers. Republicans are more reserved in public discussions than democrats. Trump overshadowed them and offcourse they don’t like that.

In as much as the banning of Trump twitter poses danger on humanity in term of our voices could be monitored and rendered voiceless.
Mind u sir, I was trump supporter likewise some other people around, but the truth still remains that trump went to far, even during the black live matters, he never showed concern rather what did u do or say? He said he that he will unleash the military on the street
